Brooklyn band VietNam is a mixture of all of the above. Their music hearkens back to the ’60s when the guitar was arguably at its most powerful, and music was used as the soundtrack to battling both domestic and international problems.
Since creating VietNam in 2004 frontman Michael Gerner has released three albums, and has lost and gained members along the way. His current lineup is a six-piece (Gerner included).
The band will be one of many at this year’s Austin Psych Fest, and are sure to put on an enjoyable performance.
